Is the clock accurate, Tom...or is it all show and no go?
Tom Wilson: It's all go, Ray - that's the time I took the pic, after a good lunch with friends smile

Très jolie architecture !
Tom Wilson: Oui, formidable!
What an impressive structure Tom!
Tom Wilson: The Victorians were into being impressive - the worthy burghers liked to know where their money was going smile

The Victorians certainly liked to build impressive civic structures, Tom
Tom Wilson: They could indeed! A pity you couldn't get to the meet-up yesterday - the weather was very kind to us!

This has got civic pride down to its roots
Tom Wilson: Typical Victorian!
They certainly don't make them like this anymore, Tom!
Tom Wilson: That's certainly true, Ginnie. A pity you couldn't make it to the meet-up yesterday - lovely weather, as I guess the pics will show.
There are some wonderful Victorian Civic buildings in the North of England

Good to see you yesterday
Tom Wilson: There are indeed - Leeds and Manchester seemed to have a competition going on smile Good to see everyone yesterday - I'm looking forward to the next!
Very impressive and it seems that fancy buildings are still being constructed in Thailand.
Tom Wilson: The Thais have a monopoly on "fancy"! smile
It's very impressive Tom. Town halls were, in Victorian days, seen as the boast of a town's wealth and pride.
Tom Wilson: Absolutely - showed them where the money was going smile Now they don't have the money to do anything!
gorgeous shot of this exquisite bit of architecture, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush.
The Victorians really went to town on the splendour of their civic buildings in the big cities didn't they.
Tom Wilson: They did indeed, Brian.
Nice time of day for a photo.
Tom Wilson: For a change it wasn't raining smile

Crikey! That's fabulous. From the good old days when we did not seem short of a bob or two.
